freelancer.com I worked on other online platforms and saw this one so decided to give it a try. The client never paid or funded for the project so I never started the work, but because I accepted the job offer they now charged me $78 and asked me to pay it. I said I'm not paying for services I never did or was paid for. They emailed me and said because I accepted the job, no matter if you are paid for the job, they don't care. They only care about fattening their pockets. If you are a freelancer, stay away. guru and upwork i've never had a problem with and will continue to work there. I'm so glad I never gave them my credit card info or bank account info or they would have taken the amount off. They won't allow me to close this account until I pay. So I guess it will be open forever. Goodbye freelancer.com!! Internet

They are charging me $78 for a client that never paid. So glad I didn't give them my credit card info or bank account. The client will not fund the project and I will not start it, but they said I still owe them for setting it up. how laugable that is. How do I know that isn't them giving me the job just to make me pay for nothing. They are scammers!!

class action???

AUTHOR: darkhorse020453 - (USA)

i am a virtually identicle victim

this time i detected that the employer was trying to scam me via my bak account and it appeared to be a lmoney laundering system from the descriptions (which i kept a record of our conversations)

i told freelancer and they yold me--too bad, you acceoted the job you pay us

this is tital BS and i see MANY people who have een their victim-- we should all band together and sue the pants off of them-- they are being willing accessories to financial crimes

they think they are invincible because no one has the cajones to call them on their illegal policies bs in court

well i do

and i will

who will join me?
